The SOG (aka Sea of Green) is a technique in legal territories used to produce rapid crop cycles and generous harvests. This method involves growing cannabis plants near each other, forcing the plants into early flowering via managing the light cycles, and pruning the lateral branches to encourage a heavy main bloom. This means harvests come early, and although each plant produces less due to heavy pruning of the side(lateral) branches, you should be able to get many more plants in your grow space, and therefore a larger yield.
Growing plants from the sea of the green method do not require any expert training or equipment. It is mostly a matter of smaller containers, pruning and lighting. However, it is essential to choose plant varieties known for quicker flowering rates, natural production of a central cola with minimal side branching, and consistent growth. Clones are perfect for achieving uniformity, but seeds can also be used if chosen wisely. But remember, only use a single strain per SOG – you want your plants to be as similar in shape and size as possible to ensure an even canopy. This enables the space to be used efficiently and the light to be maximised.
